Voluntary Sector Support resilience survey results
Horsham District Voluntary Sector Support and Healthwatch West Sussex have worked together to support the Horsham District Voluntary Sector during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Working collaboratively to gather information from the Voluntary and Community Sector, our aim has been to capture the challenges, impact on staff, volunteers, service users, parishioners’, financial impact, future planning due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic to understand how, as a sector, we learn from this.
This report is a snapshot of the views captured via our online Resilience Survey, completed by 16 organisations operating services across the Horsham District. The survey consisted of 21 questions (designed in conjunction with sector leaders) to understand the current impact on service provision, staff, volunteers and service users/members/parishioners’ as well as financial, funding and forward planning.
The results show that the coming months are not without significant challenge for the voluntary and community sector locally however, there is opportunity for continued collaborative working and effective partnerships to be made for the best outcomes possible for local people. Voluntary Sector Support look forward to continuing to collaborate with, support, lobby and advocate for and advise our partners and colleagues in the voluntary sector as their local infrastructure provider.
